Mc Call's from January 1966: Pink Saturday

It's Pink Saturday over at Beverly's blog, How Sweet the Sound. Head on over, if you have the chance, and visit other Pink Saturday participants!

I recently visited my next door neighbor, the thrift store, and found this Mc Call's magazine from January, 1966. I stood there and flipped through it for a little bit---since several of the stories and ads caught my attention, I decided to go ahead and buy it. I'm sure my mom will enjoy it when I'm done. She was 9 years old in January, 1966.

This magazine features several photos with the color pink. The first thing that just cracked me up was this ad for Frigidaire refrigerators. Check out their "Space Age" suits, helmets and goggles!

The next ad that caught my eye was one for Comet cleanser in the "pretty, new Bathroom Size!" Now this is something that I really wish was still around---Comet in a plastic container! I don't know about you, but there has been more than one instance of my Comet shaker can getting all nasty from a leaky pipe under the sink! How smart to make them plastic---I wonder why they ever took them away??

My mom would really enjoy the next ad for the Columbia Record Club (now Columbia House...for
cds and dvds!) Here's one especially for you, Mom!

What's up with the accent mark over the "e" in Cher?

My husband loved this ad for
Dermassage skin lotion...because "You don't have to be fat to be soft"!! So funny!

Have a happy Pink Saturday!


  1. Lol Gotta love it! My dh was born in '66!

  2. This is so fun!! I remember the comet in the little colored containers. And of course, the record club. I was 9 in 1966.

    Happy Pink Saturday.

  5. Yep, that was my time also. I was 16 then and your find brings back some memories for me. How funny. Brousing through that magazine can show you how much or how little things have changed. Happy Pink Saturday, Char
